Medical Marijuana Advocates Propose 2012 Ballot Initiative
A coalition of medical marijuana advocates led by Americans for Safe Access and the United Food and Commercial Workers' medical cannabis division has proposed a 2012 ballot initiative that would establish a Board of Medical Marijuana Enforcement to oversee entities that grow, distribute and test medical marijuana products. The coalition submitted the proposed initiative to the secretary of state last week. The state attorney general's office must approve the proposal before its supporters can begin collecting signatures.
